Royal I (Royal Alpaca)

  • The first time we sampled this heavenly yarn, we fell madly and deeply in love.  This yarn is UNBELIEVEABLY sumptuous.

    Royal I is the knitters dream come true. The very best selection of alpaca, with 18.5 – 19.5 microns (from only 1% of global alpaca wool production).

    Illimani claim that this yarn is as soft as cashmere.  We disagree.  It's even softer than cashmere.  And with the added bonus of increased durability since it's an Alpaca.

    100% alpaca

  • We are so so proud to be the sole UK stockist for Illimani Yarns.  We know you'll LOVE their gorgeous yarns as much as we do.

    After many years in the fashion business importing ready-to-wear collection of alpaca and llama wool apparel hand-made by artisans in Bolivia, Illimani decided it is time to focus on the yarn. By applying all their experience on knits and fine wools to carefully select the very best natural yarns in the world at unbeatable prices.

    Illimani has worked with thousands of artisans in Bolivia and Peru, many of which have mastered the art of knitting and crocheting. Our mission is to provide the materials and the inspiration to our customers to help them create their own artisanal textiles.
